A little more than 24 hours after announcing a blockbuster trade, the new-look Calgary Flames
host the Philadelphia Flyers
as part of the NHL's four-game schedule on Monday night.
Calgary acquired forwards Matt Stajan
, Niklas Hagman
and defensemen Ian White
and Jamal Mayers
on Sunday morning from the Toronto Maple Leafs
in exchange for defensemen Dion Phaneuf
and Keith Aulie
, as well as forward Fredrik Sjostrom
. The Flames had lost nine in a row before earning a 6-1 win against Edmonton on Saturday night. Monday's game against the Flyers begins at 9:30 p.m. ET.
In a game that will be televised nationally in both the U.S. (Versus) and Canada (TSN2, RDS), the Pittsburgh Penguins
return to the ice at 7 p.m. ET as they face the Buffalo Sabres
at Mellon Arena. In a rematch of the last two Stanley Cup Finals, the defending champs earned a 2-1 shootout win against the Detroit Red Wings
on Sunday afternoon.
Thirty minutes later, the Florida Panthers
host the Anaheim Ducks
at the BankAtlantic Center. Anaheim also made a deal with Toronto on Sunday, as the Ducks acquired Jason Blake
and Vesa Toskala
from the Leafs in exchange for Jean-Sebastien Giguere
In the final game of the night, the Edmonton Oilers
, who went winless in January and have lost 13 games in a row, take on the Carolina Hurricanes
at Rexall Place at 9:30 p.m. ET. Carolina (19-28-7) has won four in a row and is making a desperate attempt to get back in the playoff race in the Eastern Conference.
